Not all iPhone 12s are created equal.
At Cool Stuf we have done our homework. We are offering the new iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro that both feature dual nano SIMs – both open line.
If you don’t know the advantages of unlocked dual SIMs then you are probably new to PNG. If you want a refresher visit our article from June 2020
Cool Stuf has also decided not to bring in the Pro Max – for good reason. Many critics have claimed the device is too big to use comfortably. From experience, we also believe the market in PNG is more centred on the base model iPhone 12 and the Pro.
We’ve also simplified things for prospective buyers by just offering the 128GB version of both devices and keeping the choice of colour equally simple.
Here’s how our two models of iPhone 12 compare:
iPhone 12 – The base model pushes everything forward with superfast A14 Bionic, the fastest chip in a smartphone. A new dual-camera system. And a beautiful Super Retina XDR display, so you can see everything in vivid detail. Key features: 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display; Ceramic Shield, tougher than any smartphone glass; A14 Bionic, the fastest chip ever in a smartphone; Advanced dual-camera system with 12-megapixel Ultra Wide and Wide cameras; Night mode; Deep Fusion; Smart HDR 3; and 4K Dolby Vision HDR recording; 12-megapixel TrueDepth front camera with Night mode and 4K Dolby Vision HDR recording; industry-leading IP68 water resistance; iOS 14 with redesigned widgets on the Home Screen, the all-new App Library, App Clips and more!

iPhone 12 Pro – from the front, it’s impossible to tell the 12 and 12 Pro apart. They are both 6.1 inches and 2,532 by 1,170 pixels. Both have the big notch at the top which Apple needs for its Face ID sensor, and very small bezels around their beautiful screens. The phones are slightly smaller than the iPhone 11. iPhone 12 Pro is noticeably a little heavier than the 12 (6.66 versus 5.78 ounces). Both are lighter than the 11. The displays are all higher resolution than their predecessor – both the 12 and 12 pro are about the same resolution as the 11 Pro was.
Both the 12 and the 12 Pro pack 2,815mAh batteries. That’s smaller than the iPhone 11’s 3,110mAh cell, yet these iPhones last longer on a charge; that’s the effect of the OLED screens combined with the more efficient A14 processor.
The big difference between the 12 and the 12 Pro is in the triple lens camera system for next-level low-light photography. It’s a beautiful leap forward. It features incredible low-light photography with its new Pro camera system, and 4× optical zoom range. It has cinema-grade Dolby Vision video recording, editing and playback. Night mode portraits and next-level AR experiences with the LiDAR Scanner make it worth the additional investment.

A final word about design – both models feature a sleek new flat-edge design which sets it apart, with an aerospace-grade aluminum enclosure combined with the Ceramic Shield front cover, which goes beyond glass by adding a new high temperature crystallization step that grows nano-ceramic crystals within the glass matrix, increasing drop performance by 4x – that means it’s four times less likely to shatter than previous iPhone glass.
iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini both feature all-screen Super Retina XDR displays that stretch further to the edges, with system-wide colour management for industry-leading colour accuracy. Both models deliver a 2 million-to-1 contrast ratio for true blacks, and an immersive HDR viewing experience for high-definition video, photos with more detail, and nearly twice the peak brightness of iPhone 11.
iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini have an industry-leading IP68 rating for water resistance up to 6 meters for up to 30 minutes, and are protected against everyday spills.
